Capital City

A PPC Case Study

Capital City began in 2006. Since then, the company has developed over 40 projects all around Washington, DC. These projects include the transformation of unique properties like commercial buildings, boutique condos, and historical estates into new walkable urban communities.

One of Capital City’s main services includes acquisition at which point the company considers multiple scenarios to maximize the value of a property for everyone involved in the deal. They tie this in with their sales and marketing where they set the design solutions including product size, type, and mix necessary to make the project both livable and highly marketable.

On the development side, Capital City values transparency and collaboration to deliver high-quality projects. The team and all stakeholders are involved from beginning to end which is enabled, through our efficient processes, to ensure the satisfaction of everyone involved. With construction, Capital City prioritizes budgeting and ensures that the initial budget is carried throughout the construction. In addition to that, the company keeps an eye out for new and innovative construction materials and practices to meet or exceed the expectations of all stakeholders involved in the project.Lastly, Capital City offers a wide variety of investment opportunities. Through its collaborative strategy, the company has made a long track record of creating fruitful returns for its investors.

We officially started running our PPC service in September 2019 and continue optimizing Capital City to the present date.
